Letter from Edward Partridge, 27 May 1839
- Source Note
On 27 May 1839, , who was living near , Illinois, sent a brief letter to JS, who had relocated to , Illinois, on 10 May. Partridge included with his message another letter that he was informed was for JS. Because of JS’s recent move, it was possible that mail was still being sent to him in Quincy. On 29 May 1839, replied to Partridge on JS’s behalf, clarifying that JS was not the intended recipient of the forwarded letter. Partridge’s original letter to JS is apparently not extant, but Mulholland copied it into JS Letterbook 2 between 27 May and 30 October 1839.
